NEW NEWS PULLED FROM THE CUBE, an exploration in formation

This new media work from YATE utilizes cg animations, original video, found media and original sonic compositions to explore techniques of mental reconditioning.

Follow the line that forms the fate of hypnotic thoughts before they dissipate.
Yours too will be had before too long, overlooked, and then gone.
Take part in the easy mark youÂre made to be. Remember to forgetÂor was it Âforget to rememberÂ?
Either way, youÂre sure to say: Âmore, more, more!Â

Be there and be square. WeÂve got you pegged.

Subject: weird, strange and many questions !
I do not know if I have to use this kind of work for re-thought the art of manipulation. Many questions after I have seen this video (with my eye or the brain ?)

Well the video is divided in 3 parts : abstract, live operation on the eye and a collage. The most disturbing is the second part...

The first part is well thought mixing some explanations through aesthetics abstracts images.

The second is hard and ugly and I do not understand its aim : the live operation on the eye.

The third with its collage is interesting but, once again, the aim is not clear even if the intention is understandable for the subject of manipulation.

I ask myself if this is the right way to speak about the problem of manipulation.

What we manipulate ? Images, the eye through the body or only our thoughts. The answer is difficult...
